During my time in Western Australia I tried to pack in a fair bit but still feel like it had way more to offer! During my visit I ventured to …
Absolutely loved my mini trip to Rotty! I opted to stay overnight rather than go for a one day trip so that I wasn’t feeling like I had to squish anything into the day. Rent yourself a bike for Rottnest Island and go on a cycle to its many beautiful beaches and go on the hunt for a Quokka sighting and your kept happily occupied all day. After this, if you opt for an overnight stay like me, it’s great to find a nice beachside restaurant to get some grub look out to sea to the distant city lights and watch the little Quokkas come into their own scrounging for food. Some people even stay a bit longer and rent out lovely beachside apartments; for me an overnight stay was enough as after that it all got a bit samey but if you’re after a peaceful place to chill out with no traffic noise and calm scenery surrounds then that might be the right shout for you.
Western Australia is definitely somewhere I will be visiting again in the future as I only saw such a tiny portion of it and from what I saw fell in love with it! Hearing tales from locals who have travelled further north than Perth has done nothing more than leave me making plans of places to see and new experiences to take on. One thing I really wanted to do during my first visit but had to postpone till a future visit was to visit the Ningaloo reef which is a true beauty and if visited at the right time of year a possible swim with the migrating whale sharks is on the cards! Further research on my part is definitely required before I know my exact route for my future road trip but even initial searching has done enough to excite me about the possibilities and opportunities that this great state offers to those that seek it.
